When we last checked in with Sookie Stackhouse, the mystery surrounding a Bon Temps serial killer had finally been solved, to the town'sinfinite relief. Sookie is thrilled that her vampire soulmate, Bill Compton, has escaped with his life (or is it death?) after coming to her daylight defense. On other fronts, Sookie's pal Tara Thornton sets downnew roots with an affluent benefactor, Maryann Forrester; Sam Merlotte resolves to get in shape-shift shape after a forest foray; roguish brother Jason finds new purpose with an anti-vampire sect; and detectiveAndy Bellefleur licks his wounds after being proven wrong about Jason's guilt. But just as things are settling down, some deadly new twists threaten to ratchet up the saga of Sookie Stackhouse to bloody new heights!

Episode 1: Nothing But the Blood
Original Air Date—14 June 2009
Two weeks later. Sookie and the staff at Merlotte's Bar & Grill are on edge when they find the dead body of a woman, who turns out to be Tara's fake exorcist Miss Jeanette (not Lafayette), in a parked car with her heart torn out. Detective Andy and the sheriff investigate and apparently the town of Bon Temps has a new serial killer in their mists. Now that Bill has turned the not-so-innocent Jessica Hamby into a vampire, she is living with him at his mansion and he is trying to teach her their own unique code of ethics. Sookie isn't too sure she likes the fact that Bill has this young, attractive woman living him, but their own relationship and emotions are too strong to set aside. Meanwhile, Tara is still living in Maryann's luxurious home and she continues flirting with Eggs who is also living there. Maryann has a few choice words for Tara's mother, Lettie Mae, when they meet. It also turns out that Sam Merlotte and Maryann have quite a history together and Sam tries to make amends, but Maryann has her own ideas. Also, Jason Stackhouse, who found religion while temporarily in jail, now considers going off to Texas for a Church-run leadership seminar for the Fellowship of the Sun. Elsewhere, Lafayette finds himself chained in a basement dungeon with a few other prisoners, and a new one is thrown in - the hick who was gay-bashing him in Merlotte's. Eric has some questions for him regarding "a fire that killed three of our own", and on the way the hick burns his face with a silver cross, prompting Eric to tear him apart, with Lafayette witnessing the gruesome event.
